Mission

The Office of the Welfare Inspector General was established in 1992 to prevent, investigate and prosecute welfare fraud, waste, abuse and illegal acts involving social services programs at both the State and local levels. The Office investigates welfare recipients who are dishonestly receiving benefits for which they are not eligible, and where appropriate, refers such investigations for prosecution. It also investigates instances in which providers of Medicaid, day care or other social services fraudulently receive payments from government. The Office of the Welfare Inspector General is responsible for investigating any failure by State and local officials to investigate such fraud and abuse within their jurisdiction. Furthermore, it is charged with recommending policies to prevent and to detect social services fraud, and to monitor the implementation of these recommendations.
